For the first time since her historic election result, the glow from Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern's gold medal win has tarnished.

Labour has hit hurdle after political hurdle and it's hurt badly, in the latest Newshub-Reid Research Poll. But National and Judith Collins won't be cracking the champagne - they don't even make the podium, because an old ally has become her greatest threat.

A leading medical expert has criticised authorities' decision to allow a COVID-19 patient from Fiji to be transferred to New Zealand for treatment, saying "it's a pity" health workers here have been put at risk.

The patient, who arrived in New Zealand earlier this week, is a senior official for Fiji's United Nations (UN) Development Programme and is currently being treated at Auckland's Middlemore Hospital.

The International Space Station (ISS) was thrown briefly out of control when jet thrusters of a newly arrived Russian research module inadvertently fired a few hours after it was docked to the orbiting outpost, NASA officials said.

But the malfunction prompted NASA to postpone until at least 3 August its planned launch of Boeing's new CST-100 Starliner capsule on an uncrewed test flight to the space station.

Britain is nearing an agreement in principle on a free trade deal with New Zealand, its trade ministry said on Saturday (local time), as London looks to bolster its post-Brexit trade ties with non-EU partners.

The European Union is Britain's single largest trade partner and the two sides have signed a post-Brexit trade pact, but business groups say they still face extra red tape dealing with European customers and suppliers as a result of Brexit.

Declassified government documents show officials were struggling to debunk TV1 footage of the Kaikōura lights UFO sightings in December 1978.

In a report submitted to the United Nations in January 1979, the Department of Scientific and Industrial Research (DSIR) classified the objects as "UFOs until identified", but said the "prospect of extra terrestrial intervention being proved is regarded as extremely remote".

OPINION: The Christchurch terrorist atrocity of March 15, 2019, highlighted some important lessons for New Zealand.

A staff member from Middlemore Hospital has been placed in quarantine as a precaution, after a “PPE protocol incident” during the management of a Covid-19 patient who arrived in the country from Fiji Thursday last night.

The Ministry of Health confirmed Friday night that the hospital worker promptly reported the incident and was moved into a quarantine facility after they were unable to easily self-isolate at home.
